Inside Outside

The momentum around outdoor living areas has really picked up in recent months, so it's no surprise that it's one of the key trends for 2021. 

The inside outside garden trend is all about creating flow from your inside space to your outdoor space, so one naturally flows into the other. The garden should feel like an extension of the home. Both your interior and exterior design must work in harmony.

White gardens

Dazzling white flowers and bright white furniture have been growing in popularity over the recent months. "Key steps to create a white garden, include choosing a dark backdrop, varying up the foliage and changing up shapes and sizes, repeating form, and finally adding some eye-catching white flowers to fill the space."

Tiny gardens

Many of us may not have a large outside area, but 2021 will see households make the most of what they do have — regardless of size. Some of the plants to have on your radar include long-flowering perennials, evergreens and climbers.

Windowsill gardening

 A windowsill garden is ideal for growing plants that will add a little something extra to your cooking — especially if you don't have a garden. Think herbs, chilli, kale, baby beetroot, pea shoots, onion and spinach. You might not have a sprawling space, but that doesn't mean you can't grow fresh plants and flowers in your home.

Cottage gardens

The trend for 2021 is charming cottage gardens. If you're looking to achieve this style at home, consider planting roses, foxgloves, poppies, sweet peas, and delphiniums.

Wild gardens

Whether you opt for wildflowers or leave a patch of your lawn unattended, wild gardens are brilliant for creating a haven for bees, butterflies and hedgehogs to thrive. Some of the plants to get your hands on include single-flowering varieties of plants and open flowers, too.

Raised garden beds

Raised garden beds are great to consider if you're stuck on space; you can control your soil better, reduce soil compaction and care for your plants much easier. The fifth trend in the list, 2021 will see many of us opting for this in our outdoor spaces.

Grey gardens

This calming hue is not only one of the most popular paint colours for the home, but it has also been making its way into the garden, too. Whether you opt for grey patio paving, fence paint, gravel, or garden path, there are many ways you can tap into one of 2021's biggest trends.
